Sitting fit provides guidance regarding workplace assessments, including Seating analysis and Workstation overviews for an entire workplace or for one particular employee’s office space.
The whole idea behind hiring a seating consultant is to be able to determine if the office environment, including the chair, may be causing discomfort, specifically back pain.
Some workstations may seem laughable at first glance but the consequences are no joke!
Aside from the fact that your workstation may be a little messy, there could be more than ten issues that need to be addressed to protect users from possible harm.
Can you spot them?
We offer two levels of assessment based on your specific requirements.
Level 1 Assessment.
Designed to analyse any risks associated with the work enviroment including the chair and desk.
We ensure that minimum legislative government guidelines are being adhered to and make necessary adjustments if necessary.
Our speciality is to minimise risks that have the likelihood of causing harm and ensure best practice is being adopted for the future.
We provide individuals with tools to ensure that they are well equipped to deal with pain issues should they arise.
Duration is 30 minutes per person and includes a comprehensive report with our recommendations and justifications for equipment if necessary.
Level 2 Assessment.
Designed specifically to assist those with an ongoing chronic or acute condition for which immediate attention is required.
We will visit you;
As well as making sure minimum government guidelines are met, we will analyse the workstation and minimise any issues that may cause harm, eliminating hazardous factors on the spot
We specialise in finding workplace solutions for people who suffer with wide and varying conditions including sciatic type symptoms and disc prolapse discomfort.
Duration 1hr 10minutes and includes a full written report with ongoing email support .Subtle adjustments may be required.
Workplace Assessments may be used as a way of just checking that you are sitting in the correct anatomical posture.
Work can be demanding in many ways and as we observe hundreds of workstations over the years, we have noticed that once workers get involved in their daily tasks then good posture may be forgotten.
When awkward postures our habitually maintained a little damage may be done to our bodies.
This damage to the body may be termed as an injury and injuries done due to poor postures being adopted are called slow injuries.
They are slow because they can build up over prolonged periods of time and can develop from chronic to acute.
Checking your workstation on a regular basis can prevent conditions from damaging your body as most conditions aggravated by a workstation can be minimised.

Why prolonged sitting can send you to an early grave!
Are you sitting comfortably? Well, don’t. A welter of medical evidence is suggesting that the act of placing your derriere on a seat can cut years off your life.
It seems armchairs, office chairs and sofas can be fatal. Sitting down is increasingly being linked to some of the modern world’s most toxic epidemics, from cancer, heart disease and high blood pressure to stroke.
Last week, researchers at Leicester University added to this grim jigsaw by reporting that time spent sitting is strongly associated with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Sittingfit never recommend static sitting, all our solutions include great opportunities for regular changes in posture.
